Letter to the family

Hello! My name is Mia and I am a 21-year-old college student from California. I currently attend California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) and am studying child development with a double minor in psychology and Spanish and have intentions to become an elementary school teacher in a bilingual setting. I am currently taking a course (in addition to the courses at CSUS) to get certified in teaching English as a foreign language; also known as an ESL or TEFL certification. I want to become an au pair/nanny in a foreign country because that is the work I currently do here in California and I absolutely love it. Additionally, I love to travel and am eager to learn more about different cultures. I also hope to gain experience in being a teacher abroad in the near future in a Spanish-speaking country since I have a great history with that language. I qualify for an au pair/nanny position because I have had over eight years of experience working with children of all ages in different settings and it is what I am passionate about. I currently live with the family I nanny for and it has been the most wonderful experience for me and they have said the same for themselves countless times. I am a tidy, respectful, and responsible "housemate" and I am more than happy to help with household chores and with taking care of pets in addition to ensuring your children are happy, healthy, and having a fun time learning and exploring. I am beyond excited for the opportunity to help your family and experience your culture. Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I look forward to hearing from you!

Experience

In being a childcare provider (babysitter, nanny, au pair, tutor) for multiple families with children of all ages for over eight years, I have had an ample amount of experience in planning activities for children to engage in that are best suited to their developmental stage. I love exploring nature, playing games, doing arts and crafts, cooking and baking, reading, singing, and so much more with the children I watch. I have worked in a preschool with children aged two through five as well as volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club with elementary school-aged children. I have also had experience in kindergarten and first grade classrooms in addition to being a volunteer girls basketball coach for fifth grade girls. My current work is as an au pair for a family with one daughter who is 27 months old. I have been an au pair for over eight months now and a nanny for over four years here in California and I have loved the arrangement. For this reason, in addition to my love for travel, I hope to become an au pair/nanny abroad.
